As part of Montana's public health improvement process, we developed a snapshot of the current state of the population's health in five domains: chronic disease, maternal and child health, communicable disease, injury prevention and environmental health, and mental health and substance abuse. The health assessment revealed an aging population with a high prevalence of health risk factors -- many associated with lifestyle choices and therefore potentially modifiable. If current trends persist, we predict an in-creasing burden on the health care system, especially from chronic disease, and an increasing burden on the public sector to pay. The public health improvement process will focus on risk reduction and enhanced preventive activities.
